Hello.
 
I have an IP address in my network and I can not identify the device. Do you know any command that I can give the IP as a param and get detailes like manufacturer, model, operating system...
 
Thank you.
 

My bad is the first question I post so did not know how to formulate it.
I am working in a network of mostly windows PC's linked by rooters and switches. Tere are also Printers and some other devices (smart phone, IP cameras...).
I am making a .NET application in WPF to get informations and monitor all this devices.
My problem is that I have no good way to get info from the devices other than PC. I probably need someone who has worked with SNMP.
 
Best regards.

You can install nmap on your machine and get it to inquire about your network. Info about it can be found here[^].
 
This tool will tell you what nodes are on your network, their MAC address and the MAC vendor. If my network is 192.168.1.*, the command I would use on my linux box is
 
sudo nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/24
 
which scans my network and reports on all nodes on it. [For the windows version, remove the 'sudo'.]
